My River Island Handbag Collection

My River Island Handbag Collection : ‘Bag-athon’ Part II


Hi guys….welcome back to Part II of the ‘Bag-athon’ Series where I share with you my Handbag Collection!


As promised, this time it’s going to be all of my handbags from River Island <3


I absolutely looooooove and adore RI handbags…and I feel they are one of the best quality ones on the High Street.


So without further ado…let’s jump right in 🙂

1) River Island Black Leather Croc Panel Tote Bag

This is my GORGEOUS, everyday, goes-with-everything, all-leather handbag from RI. One of my absolute favourites in my collection!

As RI describes it, this leather shopper is both chic and functional. Love how it features the croc textured side panels and two top handles with the stud detailing. <3



2) River Island Red Quilted Panel Tote Bag

My Christmas Bag as I like to call it! ;P


This RI handbag is nothing short of STUNNING! The red, maroon, cream, gold and black colour block quilting makes this panelled tote a dream bag to own!

As you can see it features contrast black trims, two top handles and a detachable long strap.



3) River Island Grey And Neutral Winged Tote

This River Island winged tote bag has a reptile pattern and a faux leather feel. The contrasting colors along the sides makes it an absolute stunner.

It has dual handles as well as a detachable shoulder strap which is adjustable at the top. Has a fabric interior lining and 3 side compartments, out of which one is a zippered fastening.



4) River Island Grey Croc Quilted Duffle Bag

This cute little number from RI is a pleasure to carry around. I love everything about this bag- its shape is ideal for carrying around essentials, the size is just right (not too small nor oversized)…the grey croc quilting draws attention to it instantly and i feel its a bag that will easily transition from one season to another.

It features a drawstring closure, a short top handle and also a long detachable strap. The base is hard, so the bag stands on itself without being slouchy. What I adore the most about this bag is the simple, yet stunning gold detailing and hardware! <3



5) River Island Black Woven Panel Metal Trim Tote Bag

This gorgeous bag was an anniversary gift that Karan treated me to on our trip to Dubai last year….and I couldn’t have been happier!!! <3


It is classy, sophisticated, chic, yet fun!

This structured bag will add that graphic & monochrome pop to whatever outfit you’re wearing! The contrast of the woven white and black fabric is beautiful and the featured gold tone metal bar trim at the top adds class to this piece. It comes with zip fastening to keep contents secure.



As you can see, it has very striking gold hardware and detailing, like the horseshoe-shaped fixtures at the top and the drop black and gold piece with the classic RI engraved on it…ugh…this handbag is just my LIFE! <3



6) River Island Black Zip Trim Messenger Bag

This is my favourite sling bag…simply because it’s so fuss-free and chic. If you’re looking to invest in a easy piece that you can use everyday, then I highly recommend you go for this black leather look messenger bag with zip trims.

It features an adjustable, long cross-body strap, and has a very funky front pocket with the black tassels and god studs!


That’s all for my River Island Handbag Collection…hope you guys enjoyed it!

    No River Island where I live, boohoo 🙁 Number 1 and number 5 are my favs, but they’re all great picks

      Thanks so much Anne! <3
      I love those 2 too! Haha!
      It's the same in India…we don't have stores yet, but there's an online store that supplies them…and that's where majority of these 'lovelies' are from!
      Thanks so much for stopping by…
      Love… xoxo

    I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great. I do not know who you are but certainly you’re going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already 😉 Cheers!

    Good article and straight to the point. I am not sure if this is actually the best place to ask but do you people have any thoughts on where to employ some professional writers? Thanks in advance 🙂
